As always, I’ll take it

I sometimes benefit unnecessarily from working for an extremely woke employer. I’m not at all religious, but I get a lot of religious holidays, including today’s.

Still wondering?

It’s Eid. Eid al-Fitr, or so they tell me, a Muslim holiday celebrating the end of Ramadan. Or so they tell me. I take the celebrants’ word for it on these things.

Originally my employer (that would be my local public school district) had tomorrow as the day off, a weirdo middle-of-the-week holiday that would have meant going to school on Monday then having Tuesday off.

Yeah, nobody wants that.

Some weeks ago district officials informed us that they were switching the day off to Monday to better reflect the true spirit of Ramadan or some such thing.


I have my doubts, but once again… I defer to the celebrants.

Nobody seems to be complaining.

Me included.
